Fit for Life Team

Ty Jones, owner

Ty Jones’ passion for fitness began in 1983 as a college baseball player at Mercer University. Here he began working out and realized and loved how strength training made him look and feel.

Ty became nationally certified with A.C.E. (the American Council on Exercise) in 1993 and has been helping clients reach their fitness health and fitness goals as a personal trainer ever since. Ty is an IDEA Master Trainer and is now one of the most sought out personal trainers in Atlanta. Ty’s articles have been featured in the Atlanta Journal and Constitution and Atlanta Sport and Fitness.

Ty and his wife, Julie, opened the first Fit For Life personal training facility in early 1997. This East Cobb facility is devoted to the comfort, convenience, and success of FFL’s clients and trainers. Today Fit For Life family has grown to 10 nationally certified trainers and nearly 150 active clients.

Ty enjoys competing in state competitions as a natural bodybuilder and has placed in the top three positions in all of his competitions to date. Ty only competes in natural shows where drug testing is mandatory. He proudly took first place in two of those competitions, earning the titles of Mr. Novice Atlantic, 1996 and Mr. Junior Atlanta, 1998. Ty placed 2nd in the coveted SNBF Southern Open in 2006.

Active in the community, Ty coaches both his son’s baseball teams, where he has instilled a love not just for the sport, but a love for fitness in the kids. Ty also enjoys playing tennis with his friends and family.

His wish that is that all clients achieve their obtainable goals and that this healthier way becomes a lifestyle.

His motto is “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm”. RW Emerson
